The Most Mistreated Minority in the World Is …

Are Christians Extinct in the Middle East?


  Violently (yet relatively quietly) Christians are dying out in Bible lands.

The Muslim Persecution of Christians Continues Unhindered

Is America’s Largest Mosque Against Violence (or Free Speech)?


Well it is good to hear the largest mosque in America speaking out against the violence Muslims are perpetrating around the globe.

Spring is supposed to be the time of blossoming life. Flower buds burst forth with petals gleaming white against the grassy green canvas of trees and lawns.  Purple, pink, and yellow splash throughout the portrait we call spring.  It is springtime.  But in Kentucky, spring has brought violent storms, tornadoes, and rain.  Lots of rain....

Middle East Moving to Democracy?


This interesting blog post makes an assertion that uprisings in the Middle East are actually connected to a desire for liberty throughout the Arab world.  And what is the engine beneath these longings for democracy? It may be the results of the war in Iraq. Indeed, Victor Davis Hanson notes that Iraq is the only... Continue Reading →
